Argentosoma Vol. 3: No Tears

» written by Dark Wind [Discuss]

Synopsis
Ryu Soma continues to work for the people of FUNERAL. But he has not exacted his revenge yet on Frank, though he has already had two chances to do so. He begins to doubt himself and his reality, and soon enough he is taking blind action against Frank, going into rage and madness.

Meanwhile, the largest alien ever to approach Earth has come to head towards Pilgrimage Point, but right in it’s path lays FUNERAL’s home base of operations. It starts thrashing FUNERAL, and  when their last resort to defeat the alien, a particle cannon known as Fefnir, fails, all hope is lost…

Review
Halfway through the series now, I’m still enjoying it immensely, and love everything about Argentosoma. We have another 4 great episodes here. Especially interesting is Ryu doubting his path of revenge, and his very odd hallucinations of seeing Hattie as his lost love. The last episode gives us a lot of clues as to what has been going on, though it’s done in the tried but true ‘organization meeting.’ FUNERAL deals with some very interesting aliens on this disc, one that is extremely large for one, and the way FUNERAL defeats each still strikes me as ingenuitive and all out cool. Things are just getting better.

The Breakdown
Nothing not to like. Buy it now. Were you expecting me to say anything else?

 

» The Pros
Story has been slowly dolling out the details, and I'm loving the way everything feels about the show, from plot to characters to music and animation. Ryu Soma's revenge path becomes entangled and FUNERAL has some hard hitting blows to it's organization. All of it adds up to one very slick and interesting show.

» The Cons
Story can be too slow-paced at times, even for me. Though I don't like being spoon-fed clues myself, sometimes I just wish they would tell us what's going on. Nothing else is a problem though.

Very interesting, yet ambigous and mysterious at the same time. If you like shows that are always deep, confusing, yet with tons of action, this story is for you.

If you've already seen the show up to this point, this volume will only make you love it more. If you have seen some of it and didn't like it, this will change your mind.
